We are locals and Branson Cafe is by far our favorite "local" breakfast cafe. Being hotel managers we usually get about 4 days a month off together so we try to have breakfast out each month. Guess where we go??? That's right, Branson Cafe. Great service, great "home cooked" meals and an awesome price. They have been in business for... More

Ate here for lunch on a Wednesday afternoon. Was surprised it wasn't busier given the noon hour. Service was fast and friendly. Food was good and all made in house. Pies were pretty good too!

Great diner experience with very good food. Tonya was our waitress and she took great care of us from start to finish. Has that Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives feeling. Have to check it out when coming to Branson!

Went there a few years back on a trip. I still think about that food. Delicious doesn't come close! We had 5 of us. And we ordered quite alot of food. But it was well worth it. Place is cozy. Makes you feel like you are at MawMaws house on a Sunday evening. I can't wait to head that way... More

This was our second meal at this restaurant. The daily special never fails! It is always wonderful! The chef salad is also amazing (although I would recommend half if you're not extremely hungry!). Rachel is an amazing waitress!!!!! Ask for her if you can, your drinks will always be full!!!!!

Friends told us the food was excellent. So we waited one hour on a hot sunny afternoon ,on a hot bench outside. Well, the salad bar is simple. Not much to offer there. My husband had fried chicken. Said it was average. I had a burger and fries. Mediocre. Overall, not worth the wait. Steak and Shake would have been... More

We ate there for breakfast one morning and it was wonderful. They were busy but we got seated quickly. The owner makes the pasteries fresh everyday and they are to die for. The staff was very friendly and the food was good. This was my husband's favorite place to eat while we were there.
